Based on sermons originally delivered by Bishop Tom Wright during Easter 2007, this is a book for Lent that uses the story of a coal-mining town in northern England as a modern parable for loss and rebirth. The background history of the town - the closure of its mine, the subsequent strike and then the regeneration of the area - is given in the introduction, allowing readers to fully appreciate the context of the book, and make the most of its study questions.
